I received a wonderful and encouraging unsolicited email from an employee yesterday:
"Good Morning Doug: I just wanted to say Happy Boss's Day (tomorrow.) I really love that you and Kaylinn's pursuit of God is evident in all you do. You affect so many lives by showing that all the things we read about in the Bible and hear about at church really work in life. Thank you for being a good example of a Godly leader."

Since writing the blog last week on "Heart's Desires" I have been reflecting on how best to articulate my heart's desires which I am realizing it is not easy. This timely email helped me immensely as it succinctly captures many of my desires.

"I really love that you and Kaylinn's pursuit of God is evident in all you do." Learning to live moment by moment in God's presence is my greatest desire; to be a "one thing" person whose primary focus in life is to live in God's presence on a moment by moment basis, especially as a worshipper.


"You affect so many lives by showing that all the things we read about in the Bible and hear about at church really work in life." This is the essence of God's call on my life: to demonstrate, in my sphere of influence, that God's presence and His Kingdom principles really work and make a difference in all walks of life including business.

"Thank you for being a good example of a Godly leader." This captures my desire to be a father and mentor to many, and being a good example is a key part of this.

The email captures the guiding principle of my life: "Living in His presence, resting in His provision, demonstrating His Kingdom." My ability to demonstrate His Kingdom flows from living in His presence and resting in His provision, both of which are difficult for me at times. This is why I need ongoing encouragement that my heart's desires are also God's desires for me.

The last few weeks I have needed more encouragement than normal that I am on the right track. The email I received yesterday, clearly prompted by God at just the right time, was a great source of encouragement that I am pursuing His desires for my life. More next week!
